Two Quick Ones


Just popping in quickly to share two cards I made today.  My Mom asked me to make some birthday cards for her, so that's what I did!  She actually asked for five of them - but I only managed to squeak two out this afternoon.  But that's okay, because Summer Camp starts tomorrow, and I know there will be lots of inspiration to complete the other three!

Both cards were inspired by challenges.  The first one was inspired by a "new" challenge that I just stumbled upon, although being that they are on Challenge #117, it's obviously just new to me!  You need to check it out - it is a ton of fun, and I plan to play along again and again!  It's called The Friday Mash.  But, I'm not going to link my card up.  This week's challenge was a Tic Tac Toe, and I chose flowers, colouring and buttons.  But as the card was coming together, I couldn't make it work with buttons.  So I guess mine is just a Tic Tac!  Here it is anyway:

The second card was inspired by the Freshly Made Sketch Challenge #93.  I'm not sure if by adding the large scale bird I stayed true to the sketch, but I couldn't resist - the bird is so adorable!  I'll let you decide for yourself *wink*!!

Here's the sketch:

And my card:

 Just some sweet and simples today, using TAWS and Paper Smooches stamps.  Pretty self explanatory, but any questions at all, just leave me a little note and I will get back to you :)

For those of you starting in Summer Camp tomorrow, I'll see you there!!
Have a good night!


  1. Both of those cards are so cute! I really like the flowery doggie card! :)

  2. Okay, from "stunning" with your previous card to all-out 1,000% adorable and cute with these two! The dog and those two birds (the big one works with the sketch wonderfully!!), are soooo sweet, and the colours you've selected - excellent choices! The flower patch = special touch, as is your signature heart! LOVE!! Your mom will be delighted to send these out, and whoever receives them will be thrilled!!

  3. These are both such cute cards! The stamped images are adorable. Thanks for joining us at Freshly Made Sketches this week!

  4. SUPER sweet Shannon. You need to be on a Design Team (Any TAWS peeps, hint hint)
    !!!! These are SUPER Cool! And you SOLD me on the Weiner Dog... That stamp shot right to the TOP of my wish (gotta have) list.

    Thanks for you awesome support my DD cards... :)

    Again, if you are not on a DT (if you want it that is) within 2 mos, I will eat my hat. LOL

  5. Oh, these are both so sweet and adorable!
